If you’re an iPhone® or iPad® user who has dropped your device, cracked your screen or done much worse you’ve been limited to going to an Apple® store to wait in line to hand your device over for repair and wait some nebulous period for its return.

If you’re lucky enough to be running Win 7 Professional (or an Enterprise edition) you will be able to purchase extended support – but everyone else will be out of luck.
